Release Perfection Paralysis and Step out of your comfort zone.
When you pray for God to show you purpose and focus on what brings you peace, the doors of opportunity begin to open. You begin to have a stirring in your spirit that many would say is a “calling” on your life.
I have discovered through meeting hundreds of women as well as my own experiences, that most of our passion work comes from our pains. Suffering a traumatic event, growing up in an abusive dysfunctional childhood, surviving a devastating diagnosis, hitting rock bottom in addiction or coming to grips with disappointment or betrayals.
My story of heartbreak hits home if your a Mom. My life was going great. I had 3 amazing children, husband #2 who I adored and adored me and I just landed a corporate job after many years as an ICU RN. I was in California 2000 miles away from home when the phone in my hotel room rang at 2:30AM. My husband who was crying so out of control could barely get the words out and say, "It's Bryant" I immediately said, '' don't tell me" I knew in my heart he was gone without hearing it. He struggled to get it out, ignoring my plea to not say another word, "he is gone Cherie, he was in a car accident."
For 7 years I journaled every second I could about my pain, struggles, depression and pure misery in my life. I knew God was calling me for something, but I resisted. I wanted the words to be just right, because what if I say the wrong thing. I wanted to look perfect because what if they judge me. When my book launched in 2014 Wake-Up Call....A Mother's Grief Journey my entire life changed once again.
The Bible tells us in” (1 Corinthians 16:9 TPT). “There’s an amazing door of opportunity standing wide open for me to minister here, even though there are many who oppose and stand against me.
Isaiah 54:17 says, “No weapon formed against me will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me.” This is the Lords vindication.
When you reach new levels of growth in your career or your personal life that lead to abundance and sharing what God has done for you, that opens new doors for more opposition. You may discover that not everyone is for you, not everyone is in your corner and the devil uses those individuals to distract you from what God has prepared for you.
What have you been through and not just survived but thrived and want to share with the world because you know someone else can learn from your experience? Do you have a craft, service or product you want to sell and you feel stuck but you know it will resolve a pain point for someone? I will tell you like my dear friend and mentor told me, holding onto your message because you don’t feel comfortable yet to share it, is selfish. Your holding back on something that could help another because of perfection paralysis and the fear of the unknown.
What lights your soul on fiyaaa and you just can’t seem to step out of your comfort zone to do?
Life is all about seasons, phases, and stages. Lean into every level and season of life and extract the lessons God is teaching you. God is prepping you for what He has prepared for you. You’re not just going through this season; you’re growing through it.
What's stirring in your spirit?
